    Ok seankelly15...I didnt "make anything up". I didnt say whether this or that happened. I was bring awareness to the fact that lots of people were doing that after the Super Bowl. I NEVER accused anyone of anything. People really jump the gun.

    desheral43... i understand your pain. people unfortunately do NOT care about how what they say affects others. i've been through this, and unless they were eyewitnesses to the accident, they know nothing. i pray for you and the family, as you go thru this hard time. please know that there are people out there that care.

    @ Hey Yuall, I didn't say it was a GOOD video. I Shot it with a phone through a window, screen and 2 trees. But it gives you a rough idea how many emergency vehicles responded within a few minutes of the accident.

    This happened right behind my home. It sounded like a stick of dynamite going off. Shook my entire house. I rolled out of bed, grabbed my 12Ga and checked my doors thinking someone had tried to break in. By the time I went back upstairs, Fire, Police and Ambulance had arrived... Yikes. I suspected someone had lost their life.. Short video clip taken from my back window: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBzs-UeGEjw
